A strong team is built upon people working together, getting to know each other, and respecting each other, while completing necessary work and tasks.
- Share stories of teamwork, collaboration, community giving, and other collaborative initiatives.
- Share personal stories that include hobbies, family/friend photos, and personal successes/accomplishments.
- Encourage employees to support each other and get to know each other personally.
- Create “role and soul” intros for new hires. Invite new hires to answer a few personal questions such as favorite meal, best concert they ever attended and dream vacation and share their answers along with a personal photo (family, pets included if they feel inclined) in a slide or print format when the employee is introduced to the organization. Slides can then best posted outside cubicles or as part of an ongoing slide show on a shared monitor in a common space in the organization.
